SPEAKER SERIES

STAGE DOWN ON THE CORNER

Never one to shy away from thought-provoking content, Stage Left Theater is set to present a staged reading of Antoinette Nwandu’s drama Pass Over, an examination of contemporary racial strife by way of Waiting for Godot. The play focuses on two young black men who spend much of their time hanging on a street corner and discussing their circumstances in life, all while a white police officer menaces them from afar. Since premiering in 2017, Pass Over has courted as much controversy — a review in the Chicago Sun-Times accused the play of racism toward white people — as acclaim: One of its performances was filmed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Spike Lee, and it’s currently streaming on Amazon Prime. Regardless of your feelings, it should inspire spirited discussion after it’s over. — NATHAN WEINBENDER

KARA COONEY EGYPTOLOGIST

A new interactive installation by Laboratory Spokane resident artist Daniel Shieh asks viewers to set aside their unconscious biases of each other in an unexpected way. Participants in the three-minute experience, hosted this weekend at Kolva-Sullivan Gallery downtown, enter a completely dark room together, wearing special goggles that illuminate only their eyes, and earplugs so they can’t hear each other speak. Inside the room, participants then interact solely through their eyes. Because of this unique setup, who each participant sees around them in the dark room is a mystery. “The act of looking at another person, often charged with unequal power dynamic, is stripped of its power and replaced with a sense of mutual discovery,” the artist notes. — CHEY SCOTT Daniel Shieh: Gazing • Thu, Jan. 23 through Sun, Jan. 26 from 5-8 pm • Free; registration required • Kolva-Sullivan Gallery • 115 S. Adams St. • Register via email to kryston@laboratoryspokane.com
